REPEAL OF INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT
CI-18-0001 – Clarification Regarding Industrial Hemp Program Regulations Applicable to Industrial Hemp After Processing as a "Publicly Marketable Hemp Product"
The Washington state department of agriculture repeals Interpretive Statement Number CI-18-0001. The interpretive statement was filed with the office of the code reviser on February 14, 2018 (WSR 18-05-050). It established how the department applies licensure requirements under chapter 15.120
RCW, Industrial hemp research program and chapter 16-305 WAC, Industrial hemp research program, regarding industrial hemp that has been processed consistent with department regulations into a marketable commodity.
The department filed a CR-103 on June 7, 2018, amending chapter 16-305 WAC that addresses this issue. The rule amendments go into effect July 8, 2018. Therefore, the interpretive statement is no longer necessary and should be repealed.
